About Pathfinder Worldscape
“Dynamite’s fantasy adventure crossover event kicks off as the Pathfinder iconic heroes are drawn into the mysterious Worldscape, where the greatest warriors of Hyboria, Barsoom, Golarion and Earth clash in an ancient battle of life and death, magic, monsters, and mystery. The first issue contains official game statistics for Red Sonja, including a brand new archetype called the Sword-Devil that allows characters to go toe-to-toe with the fiercest combatants, all while wearing no armor. Future issues will provide game statistics for heroes like John Carter and Tarzan, as well as new rules, archetypes, and races for use in any Pathfinder RPG campaign. Each issue also includes a bonus miniatures-scale pullout poster map depicting key scenes or locales from the story” ~ Official Press Release
